1. Routine oxygen consumption (VO2μl 285 mg-1 h-1) by specimens of Ostrea acclimated to temperatures between 5° and 25°C increases with exposure temperature throughout much of the range 5 to 30°C. 2. There is little evidence of a relative suppression of the acutely-measured rate: temperature curves for routine oxygen consumption following warm acclimation. Energetic costs in Ostrea thus rise sharply with increase of environmental temperature. 3. The clearance rate (V w ,ml 285 mg-1 h-1) of… CONTINUE READING
